Broncos unravel Ravens

October 15, 2012

The Bishop Broncos beat the California City Ravens, 48-7.
The football game wasn’t as close as the numbers imply. Befitting a Homecoming Game, the Broncos controlled the ball, the clock, the field, everything but a couple of Ravens’ speedy, little running backs and early game drizzles.
The Ravens have improved over the last few years but not enough to make a dent in the football juggernaut that is Bishop.

Lake Sabrina
Nice cool breezes, a bit of rain, hail, lightning and thunder-booms were experienced by the many anglers at the Lake over the week. Those cool breezes were needed over the first of the week as it was darn warm up here when the clouds weren’t around. We had almost a half an inch of rain in less than a half hour Saturday night – sure love watching the lightning!
